Cauldron of Souls

Artifact

This is a great list. You might consider these:

Wild Beastmaster
Ohran Frostfang
Mycoloth
Cultivator of Blades
Cauldron of Souls
The Great Henge

Personally I would cut these:

Elvish Archivist
Lily Bowen, Raging Grandma
Drumhunter
Forgotten Ancient
Biogenic Upgrade
Helix Pinnacle

I want to like Hunted Bonebrute, but I feel it's going to die as soon as it gets blocked. +1/+1 counters helps though.

A bit more "out there", but Cauldron of Souls lets you bring back enemy creatures when a board wipe happens so that you can kill them again. (Proliferate helps.) Obviously helps you save your own stuff too.

Massacre Girl is such an awesome card. I'm currently playing her in Elenda, the Dusk Rose as a powerhouse wipe. If you want to flicker her, Cauldron of Souls is one of the few ways to do it in mono-B.

Excellent use of my two favorite artifacts in the same deck, Cauldron of Souls and Cryptic Gateway!

You could go massacre tribal with Massacre Girl at the helm and Massacre Wurm in the 99. Play Blade of the Bloodchief, even though that doesn't work with Meathook, it works great with MG. Revel in Riches is insane ramp with a wincon stapled on. Cauldron of Souls even reanimates your creatures.

@dacardgabo Sheoldred, the Apocalypse and Phyrexian Obliterator are two that I've been leaning towards putting in (or back in when it comes to the Phyrexian Obliterator). My current edge cards are Yahenni, Undying Partisan (just kinda falls short of the other 2 tbh), Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon (they generally cause a lot of hate to be directed towards me even tho I love skippy to death), Torment of Hailfire (just a stale way to win due to how common of a wincon it is for black), Praetor's Grasp (it's fun and stayed in since I cracked a foil back in the day, but it's hard to use on spelltable and ppl generally just don't like u taking things. Note, you can exile a combo card even if you never plan on using it), and the tutors Beseech the Queen and Grim Tutor (70% of the time, they just find land or a targeting permanent, but I would rather them just be better draw spells). I just haven't found anything personally interesting enough to put in for them yet.

Profane Command's last ability allows you to target multiple creatures to kill with Horobi, Death's Wail similar to how Touch of Darkness and Cauldron of Souls work, but requires mana for each target. The third ability gives you a way to get around indestructible. The other two options are more niche and game state specific, but are still nice modes to throw onto a card that already fits the game plan.

Necromancy is a general good-stuff card. It targets things in the graveyard so it won't kill them with Horobi, Death's Wail (as they are already dead when the target happens, and just become attached when they enter the battlefield. Similar to how Gift of Doom can be attached to Horobi, Death's Wail if you morph it). I generally just play it if I wanna bring back something big for value (like Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni) or flash it in to grab a sneaky blocker.

Darksteel Ingot is decent because my friends like to just blow everything up. There's a lot of Vandalblasts, Bane of Progresses, Aura Shards, etc. But Relic of Legends is perfectly fine as the second ability doesn't actually target what it taps. And you have it right, it is still a mana ability, so you can use it at any time you would have priority. Do note that the ability is coming from the Relic of Legends itself, so you can tap a creature with summoning sickness for it too.

Lol, I'm glad other ppl are using Mimic Vat. It was always a pet card of mine. Super fun when you can throw a Phyrexian Metamorph under it. Or cheat the trigger by ending the turn with Sundial of the Infinite so you can keep the token.
